Right-lane closure planned on H-1 airport viaduct this weekend


The state Dept. of Transportation will close the right lane of the H-1 Freeway on the airport viaduct heading east-bound this weekend.

The closure will be in effect from 7 a.m. Saturday through 7 p.m. Sunday between the Kamehameha Hwy. overpass and the Middle St. tunnel. All ramps to and from the airport will remain open.

The project will replace approximately 94,000 square feet of concrete deck on the airport viaduct. Weakened portions will be removed using high pressure water and sealed with a fast-setting concrete to complete the repair. Expansion joint repairs and pavement striping will also be done.

The project will consist of primarily weekend work and will run through 2015.

The DOT urges drivers to allow for extra travel time to the airport, and to drive slowly and safely through the work zone area.
